Wurstfest Fun

This weekend kind of sucked. I started coming down with a cold on Saturday and by Sunday I felt horrible. I spent most of the day lying around or sleeping. We didn’t get anything done around the house. I hate being sick when we could be doing stuff as a family but I’m glad that Patrick was there to help. Friday was actually a lot of fun. We went to Wurstfest like we do every year. Jace really enjoyed it[Read more]

Long Week

Yesterday I think I finally got my wordpress app working again. For awhile it hasn’t let me save or upload any postings. Since I do most of my blogging on my phone it slowed things down. I just finished with my 32 week appointment! I go again in another two weeks but it seems she might have finally flipped head down. I’m getting an ultrasound at 36 weeks to check her growth and and to make sure she is head[Read more]

Spider-man Halloween

Time has been flying by… I’ll be 32 weeks on Wednesday¬†and we aren’t ready at all. We have been so busy with doctors appointments, work, and all the other little projects we have going on we haven’t gotten much done around the house. When I was pregnant with Jace we had everything planned. This time it feels like everything is up in the air. We STILL haven’t decided on a name. We seem to be stuck between two that we[Read more]

3 Hour Glucose Test

Yesterday I had to take the 3 hour glucose test. I read before hand that some women get sick but didn’t think too much of it. Patrick decided to come with me. I think I made him nervous by telling him about how people had trouble keeping it down. Well it was a good thing he took off work and came. ¬†About 30 minutes after drinking the horrible fruit punch flavored drink and my first blood draw I started to[Read more]

28 Weeks

Today I am 28 weeks pregnant! Where did the time go? Tomorrow I have my glucose test and doctor appointment to check on the baby. I’ve been feeling pretty good lately except for getting a little light headed occasionally. Last week when I was having trouble sleeping I realized how quickly she will be here and started my “to do” list. I’m a list maker and its huge. Poor Patrick has a lot of work to do! lol Some of[Read more]

25 Weeks

We are seeing some signs of fall around Texas. Usually I’m not too excited about summer ending but with the pending arrival of baby number two (we still haven’t decided on a name) we are looking forward to it a little more! While I love the holiday season I’m just not a huge fan of cold weather unless we get to play in the snow! I am now 25 week along and starting to feel pretty large! We FINALLY picked[Read more]

The Big News

I’ve been meaning to post this all week but I’ve been having problems logging into my blog. On Jace’s birthday, way back on April 30th we found out that Jace was going to be a BIG BROTHER! We wanted to announce the big news sooner but wanted to tell our family first. We will be posting an announcement on Saturday so if you are friends with me on Facebook please wait to post anything. So that is the reason that[Read more]

What Goes Around Comes Around…

After we lost Hershey last week we tried our best to have a fun weekend. We didn’t want to be stuck in the house with his medicines all over the counters, collar and leashes hanging by the door, or his empty kennel sitting in the corner by the back door. I’m still slowly picking up his things and putting them away but my eyes go often to that empty corner. We took Jace to Schlitterbahn for a few hours Friday[Read more]


This past week has been horrible. We are exhausted and really hoping this coming week brings better days. On the 4th of July we went to visit family and watch fireworks. When we got home late that night we found that our 4 year old dachshund Hershey couldn’t move his back legs or tail. After 6 hours at the emergency pet hospital we found out that he had ruptured a disk in his spine and even with surgery he only[Read more]


I haven’t written on here in about a month. I have a ton of unpublished drafts about what has been going on but none of them are finished. Most are just random posts that don’t go anywhere because I haven’t felt like writing lately. We have all been feeling pretty blah around here lately. Earlier this week Jace had a random fever for about two days. It came on right before bedtime one night and stuck around for the next[Read more]
